Virginia Administrative Code
Title 4. Conservation and Natural Resources
Agency 20. Marine Resources Commission
Chapter 830. a Change in the Oyster Cull Size for Oysters Harvested from Russ Rock, Rappahannock River
7/5/2020

4VAC20-830-20. Purpose.

This chapter is promulgated in response to a request from the oyster industry that the minimum size be changed from three inches to 2-1/2 inches for oysters harvested from Russ Rock, Rappahannock River. Past harvesting of oysters from this oyster rock has shown a definite characteristic of oysters taken from this area which is that they only grow-out to 2-1/2 inches. This action is also vital and timely because of the high death rate in other areas of the state due to the oyster diseases, MSX and Dermo, which has caused a shortage in the supply of market size oysters.
